1) Script Title: Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax invocation)

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsstickerajax/index.htm

3) Describe problem: general question - no problem

I've implemented this script along with many others - both from DD and elsewhere most run fine, esp. this one. All this has been done in the search for a REAL news ticker. By that I mean one that scrolls the headlines from right to left in a narrow horiontal box (marquee).

I'm asking my question here because I think the best minds hang out here!

What is the difficulty with such an implementation? There are tons of tabloid displays and replacement implementation (like this Ajax script) but none that display the feed as described above. I'm really curious about why such an implementation is not readily available. (Even sites that sell RSS feed displayers don't have them.)

Thanks much for your time.
